prob installing gtk2 themes

hey everyone

im trying to change my current gnome theme, but am having some problems
supposedly you can just drag them into the theme manager box, but whenever i do that it crashes and says somethin about a fatal error
then if i actually go to ~/.themes and run tar to unpack my theme there, it still does not appear in the window of available themes
and if i click on the install new theme button and browse to tell it where it is, it apears to do something for about a milisec but then nothing hapens...

please please help!!! am really tired of this ugly theme ive got and want a bit of a change

What error message does it give?

If it doesn't appear, its probably not and official theme. Another possibility is that the theme is just an icon, window border, or application theme. In that case, you can get it by going to "Theme Details" and looking for whatever you installed in the tabs. If you find it, click on it and the appropriate part of your theme will change.
